And my overall point was that it's pointless to take sides in these negotiations, as neither party is affected by our support. In the interest of having a successful hockey team, I obviously want Stepan there ASAP; however, I can't "fault" him for handling this like a business procedure (as that's exactly what it is for both parties).
Players contracts are market driven within the context of the rules their union agreed to, end of story.
